Vante of Tucson, AZ Regrets Actions of Former CFO

Employee Has Left the Company

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - The following is a statement from Vante:

Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.

The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.

We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith's actions against Vante and its employees.

What keeps amazing me about these lefties is how sure they are of themselves, that the thought doesn’t even cross their minds that what they are doing is not something to be proud of. So many of them actually videotape themselves acting hateful, and don’t think twice about sharing the video with the rest of the world, PROUD of their misdeeds, thinking that the whole world will actually applaud their actions!!! It just shows just how terribly insulated they are from contrary opinion and values. They are then genuinely shocked by the reaction of the world (including when their guys get voted out of office).

#13: This is how the liberal/leftist ONE PERCENTERS treat the real working class. Talk about elite/marxist class warfare.

This time, the Ahole lost.

Chick Fil-A’s all around.

We had them last night. Tasty, with a LIBERAL dose of satisfaction.

I beleive if you read the Bible you’ll see that Christ said to forgive your enemies. He didn’t say they have to come and ask first.

He said “Before the father will forgive you, go first and forgive those who have harmed you.” AGain, didn’t say anything about being asked to forgive.

We forgive for our peace of mind whether they want it or not.

The msm will only be hurt when conservatives start ignoring them. If a republican is in the white house, don’t give press passes to liberal “journalists”. Or never ask one of them a question. Stop appearing on their TV shows and don’t do interviews with the print media. It wouldn’t be long before they’d all fold or change drastically to real journalism.

This little lady would have to forgive Adam Smith if he drove through the line 490 times. I admit I’m not that good a person. And thank God nobody has done the same thing to me 490 times. I think I would have re-acted in a not to nice a way after only about 5 times or less.

"I’m not familiar with indiegogo and its safeguards. Before I contribute anything to that site, can you educate me (and others) on the bona fides of the account? I want to know that I can be absolutely sure the gifts (I would consider anything I’d donate to be a gift and thus not subject to income tax) will go to the young lady. I understand that indiegogo would have a fee for their “hosting” services but all beyond that should go to her."

Ditto, right now there is much too much unknown. Does the money go directly to Rachel or to the campaign founder, for instance?

Interesting point! Also the name “Cathy” and the word “catheter” come from the same Greek root word, meaning “cleansing”.

Odd coincidence?

This Adam Smith, isn’t he the one who videotaped himself,,or had the camera in his car? Isn’t he the one who posted this to youtube? It’s been reposted by the way and now has Adverts on it,,,so he couldn’t take it down if he wanted to and someone may make money off his stupidity! I am thinking since he had the camera rolling, he planned on verbally assaulting whichever employee he came in contact with,,,,and I hope the CFA gal sues him over it, big time!

Typical self-absorbed liberal- calls anything that he disagrees with “hate” while completely unable to recognize his own bile. Mr. Smith, get some anger management and learn to like people again.

His contract ran out May 20th, 2012. So he was a former employee of the University of Arizona when this happened.

You probably has seen that article, but if not, I can ping you with that article after his contract expiring...

LOL good for them. This idiot thought he was going to be a hero of the leftist masses when he taped it and up loaded it to Youtube. As usual with leftest jerks they think that their stupidity is genius but in reality the mask slips off and they are seen by the public for what they really are which is shallow-minded, mean-spirited, and self-absorbed punks that are just masquerading as a intelligent and compassionate human-beings.

I can’t imagine how he thought this would end well for him.

It may yet end well for him. Perhaps with an invite to speak at the demoncRAT convention. Or selling book & movie rights to the touching, heartbreaking story of how one man's noble quest in risking everything to fight evil and hatred, caused him to be sacked by Corporate Amerika stooges.

I agree. He is no doubt the darling of Andersen Cooper, Ellen DeGen..., etc.

I’m sure he’s the darling of others, as well.

He said he felt purposeful. He will definitely end up being a purposeful tool for the liberal left.

I believe the new age without time began 8/8/12. The number 8 signifying 'new beginning' (using the seven days of creation). I don't suppose everyone will see (understand) what I have seen. It's basically watching current events and paying attention to names of people and places.

The presidential campaign has taken a turn to stark contrasts... watching....
